Here is a complete guide to total eclipses - of the Moon as well as of the Sun.
Throughout history total eclipses have been the subject of myth, legend and - more recently - of intensive scientific study. Pierre Guillermier and Serge Koutchmy talk about the mythology from ancient times, along with the fascinating history of eclipse observations.
Uniquely in a single book, they also deal in depth with the science of eclipses.
The structure of the Sun and its internal nuclear processes are explained in some detail, along with the astrophysics of Sun-Earth interactions. There is a section covering solar space missions. Another section looks in detail at the structure and physics of the solar corona. Colour plates give a glimpse of the beauty of eclipses.
And for practical astronomers, there is a wealth of information about eclipse observing, recording and photography.
